PTO Events May 2010

As we wrap up this school year, the PTO Board wants to thank all of you who were able to help in any way – working at an event, donating food or drinks, attending a meeting… Everything that you were able to do was appreciated so much and helped us to make this school a great place for our kids to be! Our work isn’t done yet –  

Speakers wanted for end of school.  

Parents are invited to talk about their careers or any talent from May 25th  to May 28th. It can be for an hour or for all day. Contact Mrs Munoz for any details.  

One Last Breakfast…
Although the kids are out of school on Thursday, June 3, the teachers must continue for another day. The PTO would love to provide them with a good-bye breakfast on Friday, June 4 to wrap up this wonderful year! If you’re able to donate fruit, baked goods, juice or any food item for this effort, it will help them all end the school year with a huge thank you! More information on this will be forthcoming…

There are many PTO opportunities available for both this year and next. Whether you want to participate on the Board, work an event when you can, or coordinate something on a one-time or frequent basis – we can use your help: PTO Board Positions for next year.  

Lisa Rankine has assumed the role of PTO President for the upcoming year.  You can contact her at lisrnkn@aol.com. Look for more from Lisa about all things happening in the upcoming months.
This year, the PTO received a BoxTops check for $325 ! That’s an amazing job, especially for a middle school. Way to go, Wildcats! Remember, keep collecting those BoxTops over the summer. We’ll be looking for them again next year!
The Westview PTO School Store is closed for the school year. Thanks for a great year and see you in September!
